It's time for Facebook to pay.

The world has learned that 2.2 billion Facebook users worldwide may have had their data collected without their knowledge, in violation of a 2011 binding agreement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

The company was required by the 20-year agreement to “limit its sharing of user data and prevent outsiders from improperly gaining access.” Facebook has failed to do both.

It’s time to hold Facebook accountable for their repeated violations of user data and trust. Add your signature to call on the FTC to issue fines against Facebook.

For years, tech experts have warned Facebook about the danger of the security loopholes created by their tools and application permissions. It was only after a whistleblower went public did Facebook officially acknowledge the security loophole that enabled unauthorized data collection of millions of U.S. users.

Facebook’s failure to uphold their responsibilities to protect our data from malicious actors time and time again shows tougher action is needed — the time has come to fine Facebook.

Apologies and regrets aren’t enough. It’s time to pay up.

If you agree that Facebook should be punished for violating their 2011 FTC agreement and fined accordingly, please sign and share this petition. Tell Facebook: If you damage our democratic process and expose our citizens to costly data breaches – you must pay.
